i know how to have scalix authenticate to an external ldap server, works beautifully.
My question is: It is possible to have ONE ldap database in the institute, containing the users data (full names, addresses, phone, fax, email, picture, etc, etc, etc) and use THAT data in scalix?
What I understand now is: i create users in scalix, scalix put's them in his (her?) own ldap server, and ONLY for authentication, it asks an external server. Meaning I would have two similar ldap directories...
Ideally I would like to onmly create a username on the scalix, and all the rest should come from my already existing ldap database. Is this possible? And howto do this..? (slurpd to synchronise the databases?)
